opportunity. that is it for tonight. thank you for joining us. do not forget to dpr the show. have a great night. neil: we are celebrating the deficits come and is not as big as we thought. only inwashington. only in washington can they celebrated us a visit that is no longer a trillion dollars. welcome, i am no curto. when it gets down to $700 billion or so, you think the you hit the jackpot, sort of likethe guy 700 pounds loses 10 pounds and thinks that he is
winning the battle. about $231 billion last than this time last year. that is $16.7 trillion. a flood of retiring baby boomers just keeps getting in. it usually proves that they grow to have a depressing and they ultimately end in those places. so let's not get ahead of ourselves and think that we have hit a triple this because we oke up on third base. we did not.
former house republican leader dick armey warned his colleagues not to use this as an excuse to give up the spending fight. but dick, i'm worried that's what will happe >> i think the republicans need to understand that they have a special place right now in this country. the whole obama administration, 90% of the press, they re in a seof delusion. and if the republicans don't compel some sensible, solid ground and understand that the biggest threat to american prosperity is the size and
clumsiness of the american government. we must correct that or face dire consequences for generations to come. the republicans don't claim that ground -- if they don't asserted strongly, we could all be out there on an iceberg or headed for one like the titanic. this is a serious problem neil: they have given up the ghost. i am hearing their latest negotiating tactic, they are going to push for a simplified tax code. but in the quest for tax reform, they have essentially taken away this push for spending cuts. would he make of that? >> well, i tink it is the old cart and horse velocity. obviously since it was put together in 1984. that is the correct answer on taxes. but remember what milton friedman thomas. the real level of taxation is the level of spending. the real problem with this
nation is burden with, we have a government that is too big and too wasteful. we have a government that spends $11 million to create one green job in an area of the economy that is nowhere near mature to contribute to the overall well-being of the economy. we have to correct this. the republicans can't understand , the requirement is to be on the spending side, and no amount of tax simplification can compensate. >> when i hear the administration bragging about the revenue coming in and saying that it justifies tax hikes and republicans then sort of give up the fight on spending cuts, for whatever meritorious reasons.
>> minimizing is what it is. let's take something that is laudable, and we will take that as our second-best soution while we surrender on what is urgent and necessary. we will take what is convenient they are slow learners, but they are also people who only learn that which is politically convenient to their ideologically defined objectives. we must voice reality. >> my fear is they have given up another chance to raise our voice.
>> the president using money-based scheme in the white house to showcase women and children that he said apple benefited mightily from the wall ready, including free mammograms and other preventative care. look all the good that it is building. >> it is meaning that women who depend on theirhusbands which they do depend on their husbands
for health insurance, are going to be left out in the dark when it comes to health insurance. not to mention one of the groups today at the white house is planned parethood and they don't provide mammograms. also, they are heavily invesd in air force history, which is completely opposite of mother's day to. neil: the one thing that i see here is the dismissal of the other nasty stuff. but it doesn't seem to be fizzling for as many people. fore a lot of average americans, paying higher premiums, dealing with the curto benefits, it's not panning out. >> you have senior premiums go
up. >> for this to work, you need a big risk pool. and we need healthy people to be in the pool. now the exchanges have so many regulations, they are supposed to be guaranteed issue, meaning no pre-existing condition. might as well get your insurance, because it's going to be too costly. neil: i thank you both very
